At Hakuichi, we are reaching for a line in artistic craftsmanship in architectural construction. We are doing bold processing in replacing the representation of delicate metal leaf in construction. Patterns tend to be uniform in patterned materials, but by applying metal leaf techniques, products are made with an artistic quality, a feeling of hand-made warmth and brilliance, and new methods are expanding for expressing architectural living space and work space construction.

The demand in construction is not only for decorativeness. In order to clear the strict quality standards of original construction, by accumulating the developed technology on durability, water-resistance, and dirt-resistance, we have made it possible to approach this new area from the world of artistic craftsmanship.

With regard to methods of construction, there are ways that can address many different situations. We respond accordingly to each circumstance, such as creating items that meet the demands of artisans in overseas processing, processing of sheet paper that can be made easily, and processing that supplies materials for large walls and small signs.
